Happy Clients

  • Alex is as good as it gets! It was a pleasure working with him to purchase our large San Francisco investment Property. He is extremely professional, has clear communication, clearly laid out important dates of the transaction and made sure we were taken care of. Would recommend Alex Clark to anyone looking to sell or purchase a home in the San Francisco area and beyond as he very knowledge about San Francisco and the outer areas. -Leslie Kanis

  • Alex is fabulous. He's super knowledgeable, personable, completely reliable, responsive, honest, thorough and on your side. Also very smart. He's the guy you want. I found him through a web search while living in Seattle and working on a relocation to SF. Stumbled onto his blog and figured that the person writing that blog was the person we wanted on our case to find our house for us. Turns out it was an excellent plan. My husband and I both love him and 4 years later still love our house. SF is an insane real estate market and Alex knows it like the back of his hand and knows how to play the game. And win! He might even turn you onto a little gem of a neighborhood you've never heard of before, like he did for my cousin. Great, talented guy, has a really lovely family, and is tops at what he does. Recommend him 100%.

  • Alex is great to work with. We recently found our new home and despite a very tight timeline he helped us not only get our offer in our time, but he was able to skillfully negotiate on our behalf, and helped us land the deal. We could not be happier! Alex is extremely responsive, easy and fun to work with, offers thoughtful advice, and has a rich network of vendors and contractors that he shares with his clients. Alex also helped us sell our SF condo and it was a very seamless process. We highly recommend working with Alex.

  • When my wife and I moved to San Francisco from the East Coast with our newborn, we quickly realized that navigating the beast of a real estate market in SF required a unique kind of agent. Luckily we found Alex. We spent 5 months looking for a home with Alex. In the process, he guided us thru 12 bids, all the typical multi-offer, SF auction-style, which can be anxiety provoking to say the least. "Are we bidding too much? Are we not bidding enough?!" Alex kept us grounded on this emotional roller coaster! We were able to tap into his unique market knowledge to navigate these conversations about how much to offer. Alex put us in touch with experts to discuss potential renovation projects on unloved properties. We picked his brain about every single micro-neighborhood in the city, talked single family vs condo and which side of the street to buy on in the Richmond if you like a sunny back yard. He is a wealth of knowledge to say the least. When we found a property that we loved, but were unsure about a few things that came up in the inspection, Alex's connections came to the rescue. Alex had the personal cell phone number of the inspector who had done the report and was able to put us in touch. This conversation gave my wife and I the reassurance that we needed to bid aggressively and got us our home. Without Alex this would not have happened. We highly recommend working with Alex to find your home in this amazing city! Dan, Hanni, Hazel and Brizzy

  • This is the third time that I’ve availed myself of Alex’s services to purchase a home in San Francisco. Needless to say, I’m a repeat client —— and I will continue to be one so long as Alex continues to plug away in the same tireless and dedicated fashion done for me in the past - especially as I’ve watched him grow and refine his service over the past decade. The usual banal litany of real estate professional superlatives apply. He’s available day or night to take questions / concerns. He’s got his pulse on homes that are off-market and not listed on the MLS so that you can maximize your search breadth. He’s tireless in his pursuit of seller’s agents to ensure you’re “in the game” (SF being a high demand / low supply market) even if your offer on a piece of property isn’t the highest or have the best terms. However, the one quality that I really value in Alex is his incredibly calm and laid back manner that is closely coupled with his personal motto - “Always be nice.” This pays off for you and for him in spades when things get contentious. Need someone to schmooze the selling agent to clue you in on what the other offers on a piece of property are coming in at? That’s Alex. Need someone to get you in to a property on one hour’s notice to do an mini-inspection after the property is supposedly no longer open to yet more bids? That’s Alex. Need someone to help you gracefully find a way to charm the seller into signing a legal affidavit about the property — AFTER you’ve already signed the sales contract and AFTER you already were supposed to have read all the disclosures? That’s Alex. Frankly - buying a home is an emotional affair. As much as one wants to be as logical about it as possible, unless your last name is Spock, there will be some drama involved. Alex knows how to make molehills out of mountains - and he will help you get it done.
